There were quite a few heart attacks reported last Tuesday with the wet heavy snow. Tim Gibbons works at the Athletic Club of Bend and holds a Masters of Exercise Science, and he's not surprised there were several heart attacks with the big storm. Gibbons says when shoveling, it’s important to lift with your legs and to pace yourself: “For a lot of us it's shovel the driveway, help the neighbor and we have to get to work. And literally probably we should've been out there earlier and taken a lot more time and pace ourselves and take breaks." In general to prevent heart attacks; he says you need to do 30 minutes of aerobic activity 5 times a week and consistent strength training. Gibbons was a guest on KBND's  “Your Town” this morning.
